4. Lung cancer survivor, here.

So double thanks for this thread.

I live in a city that has decided to allow fracking within city limits. Josh Fox's flammable faucet was filmed just a few miles south of here. My lung doctor has presented evidence to our city council, our planning commission, and our county commissioners. He's been condescended to and then dismissed, repeatedly. Those of us who have brought our concerns have been told that our documentation is "irrelevant".

The air is getting worse. I'm now up to 4L per hour on oxygen. More than one person has suggested that I move to a healthier place, and I have honestly considered doing so. The problem is -- THIS IS MY HOME. I'm a native of Colorado, born and raised. I shouldn't have to relocate because a bunch of greedy bastards are given destructive power by those who claim to work for me. And if I don't fight for MY HOME, why should I expect anyone else to?
